You’ve probably noticed that some people you know seem to have more positivity in their lives than others. They overflow with goodness and abundance. Looking at them, you find yourself wondering, “What’s their secret? They have such a great life. I want my life to be better, too.”
You might have thought the people who seem to have so much spiritually, physically, and emotionally are just blessed... and they are but so are you! Good things just happen to them. However, great things can happen to you, too, and there are specific actions you can take to attract blessings and invite more prosperity into your own life!
Being in the business of upscale retail, I get first hand pick of products I really love. My mom is my business partner and usually concedes to my "I must have it" moments. So my closet can get pretty full quickly. On the contrary as a homebody that really enjoys a clean, well organized space, I cannot stand clutter. When possessions began to take over a space, it creates abundance blocks.
The key to manifesting is to create a higher energy vibration by clearing emotions and physical clutter.
Try these strategies to usher greater abundance into your life:
Get organized. When you keep all the things you own in order, everyday living is easier and less stressful. There’s a place for everything and everything is in its place. This leaves room in your life for abundance.
Throw out old stuff. If you don’t use it anymore, get rid of it. Clear out clothing, appliances, gadgets, and anything else you no longer need. Things that are old, broken, or unable to be cleaned up properly are just taking up space you could use for something that has more value to you.
Give away some of your possessions. Whether you pass along magazines you’ve already looked at or clothing that no longer fits, spread some of the abundance you have already. When you give to others, your heart opens up and good things can more easily make their way into your life.
Find a place for possessions that are important to you. Provide each of your cherished items with a “home” within your home. When you take care of what you have, you’re acknowledging and showing respect for the abundance that’s already in your life.
Use what you have. Take advantage of the items you’ve collected over the years. You obviously see them as having value, so why not put them to good use? You’ll feel more positive about life and will get in touch with the abundance you already have when you make use of your possessions the way they were meant to be used.
Stop mindless purchases. Make a vow to avoid compulsively buying the next new gadget. If you always want the latest item on the market, look inside yourself and see what that’s all about. Also, remind yourself of all the “stuff” you’ve accumulated that you don’t use. After all, they were at one time the next new thing.
Take some time to figure out how you feel whenever you want to buy another new item. Recognize that you’ll hamper your efforts to invite abundance into your life if you keep spending money frivolously on random stuff.
Ask yourself what you need in your life right now. Learn to distinguish between “wants” and “needs.” If you do, you’ll find it actually takes very little to live a good life with purpose and abundance. As you learn to determine when you actually need something, you’ll experience more confidence in your own abilities to usher in abundance.
You may be surprised to learn that in order to invite abundance into your life, you can follow some fairly simple steps. There’s no magic secret to happiness. Anyone can cultivate it.
As you begin to truly cherish your possessions and take care of your home, you’ll find yourself loving your world and your circumstances more than ever. Your mind will be in tune with abundance and attract more of the same. You’ll begin living the abundant life you always knew belonged to you.
